Jack: I’m going to see the guidance office.
me: What’s going on?
Jack: I hate art.
me: (sigh…why can’t he like anything that I LOVE?) Awww, how come? I thought this year was going well?
Jack: No. My teacher is mean and she doesn’t do anything fun.
me: I think you need to take art though, so I don’t think you can switch it to something else.
Jack: No, not true! My friend doesn’t have art for the entire year and it says so on his schedule.
me: Hmmm. Well, if you go ask, I guess they’ll tell you what you can do. It might be too late though since it’s already the end of October.
Jack: Well I’m going. I want to switch into FACS. (he pronounces it like FACTS)
me: Facts? What’s that about? (I’m thinking he actually wants to switch into another class that might give out homework??)
Jack: Family and Consumer Sciences. They make waffles, Mom!!
me: Ah, the reasons become clearer.
Jack: (walking away) And I totally sew like a boss!
